I can Hear Music at Try it on Tuesday

Two posts in two days - very unusual - but it's time to tell you about the new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight it's I Can Hear Music, which could be your favourite song or just inspired by music.

When I was thinking about this challenge I heard  Dancing in the Moonlight on the radio and as I'd just had a crafty afternoon with my friend and stamped her  Lavinia mice, well they just had to dance in the moonlight.

The rest of the Design Team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

 I'm back on Grandma duties  today - that sounds as if I've had the weekend off - no! but I'm not complaining - especially as I now have this special photo to show - how the photographer managed to get them to sit still - wish I knew!  At 15 months they're walking all over and faster than me!

Thanks for calling in, have a great day.

Mid Month Inspiration Time at Stamping Sensations

 Happy Easter and I hope you've been enjoying the Easter break and having some good weather.

As it's the middle of the month it's time for our mid challenge inspiration at Stamping Sensations where the theme this month is I Love...

I don't get  much time for crafting these days, but I did have a little spend recently and bought a couple of stamps from Lavinia, and I'm loving this little 'Bella' fairy.  I also (I don't know why it has taken me so long) bought a Gelli plate which I love.  This background was done with Distress inks, I also stamped my foliage onto the Gelli plate with Versafine  Clare.  My fairy was stamped onto the print.
The rest of the Design Team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

Have a lovely day,

Spring Colours at Try it on Tuesday


The new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is Spring Colours.
For my card I've used Lavinia flower stamps in various spring mauves and pinks and the lovely Pipin and Wild Hares set to complete the little scene.
We'd love to see your projects and if you need any inspiration the Design Team have some great inspiration for you.
I am going to enter this at Allsorts -Any 'real' animal.

Thanks for calling in, life's a bit busy at the moment, I'm doing extra Grandma duties as DD is covering holiday and sickness, I love every minute of being with the twins but it sure is exhausting!

I Love.......at Stamping Sensations

I Love......... is the new challenge at Stamping Sensations, so really it's whatever you love as long as we can see stamping as a focal point on your project.  There are some fabulous prizes to be won from Penny Black, so please visit the main blog to see all the challenge details

I Love ....... well it's no secret that I love floral stamps and  this one from Tim Holtz Dearly Departed set is one of my favourites.
I've stamped my image on a linen base, masked the flower and stamped the script through a mask with a circle cut out and then lightly inked over the script and added a few inky splatters.
The rest of the Design Team are showcasing their 'Loves' to please pop over the the main blog to see.
